My Favorite Fall Recipes : Part 1

Everyone has their favorites, and these just happen to be a couple of mine! These are some dessert recipes I fall back on every year around this time. I hope you enjoy looking at them and feel free to try them for yourself! Let me know what you think if you do! :-)

Pumpkin Cheesecake

2 pkg. (8 oz. each) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
Pumpkin Pie Spice (to taste) 
2 eggs
1 HONEY MAID Graham Pie Crust (6 oz.)
1 cup thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping

PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Beat cream cheese, pumpkin, sugar, vanilla and spices in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs; beat just until blended.

POUR into crust.

BAKE 40 min. or until center is almost set. Cool. Refrigerate 3 hours or overnight. Top with whipped topping just before serving. Store leftovers in refrigerator.

***  I usually put the eggs in last so that I can taste the mixture along the way and make sure it tastes right to me :-)

Pumpkin Dessert Dip

1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1 jar (7 oz.) JET-PUFFED Marshmallow Creme
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg

MIX all ingredients until well blended; cover. Refrigerate several hours or until chilled.

*** I usually serve this with Graham Sticks .. but just about anything tastes good with this!



  1. Those recipes sound great! I might have to try them SOON! And yes, definitely recommend vinegar and water for your floors. I put 1/4 vinegar with 1 cup warm/hot water into a spray bottle. Spray the floor and use a rag to wipe it with. This is after sweeping it of course! It makes them shine nice and look so pretty! And you really can't smell the vinegar.

  2. I might have to try the dip for a work get together. Sounds great!
